to keen up with inflation. revenue from duck stants has been used to purchase more than 6 million acres of wet mandates preserving a viable waterfowl population. this is a responsible bill that takes into account the need of the entire sportsmen's community. why is this important? it is important because hunting and fishing and hiking is a way of life in places like montana. one in three montanans hunt big game and more than half of us fish. outdoor recreation economy across this country contributed some $646 million in direct spending to this u.s. economy. fishing and00ing is not just recreation, it is a critical part of our economy. in montana, hunting and fishing alone brings $1 billion a year to our economy. nearly as much as the state's cattle industry. it drives and sustained jobs, and with hunting season in full swing and thousands of montanaians hunting in the back country over the thanksgiving weekend, this bill is as timely as ever. mr. president, the sports men's act of 2012 is balanced, bipartisan, and widely supported. it is also fiscally responsible. the bill has no cost.
